Some artists say they are divinely inspired, and the rest happens naturally. I think in this case, I was divinely guided, because this piece of music, which I recorded from synthesizer on July 17th, 2004, has turned out to be the most spiritual piece of music I've ever composed. Here's the story...
Initially I was playing with some chords, and I had the idea that if each note on the keyboard was a sign of the zodiac, and C was Aries (the first sign) and b was Pisces (the last sign) then perhaps God might be found between the two, such as the bible says God is the "Alpha and the Omega".
So I turned on my digital recording software, did some improvisation to enhance the moment, meditated over the fingerings and proceeded to record a C Major alternating between the 8th and the 7th. Then I proceeded to run the first four chords of the circle of fifths, then moved out of the sequence and proceeded to improvise other musical ideas.
Later I went to edit and did only two cuts; truncating the beginning and end then faded out. Much to my surprise the resulting file immediately came to EXACTLY 3:14 seconds. Pi.
In addition, while reviewing the segment where I am alternating between the 8th and the 7th, (C and B), the sound of the voices appear to be singing "amen". This ALSO was unintentional. The samples in the synthesizer are factory presets, I did not alter them in any way.
I did not plan ANY of this except for the chord progression. I did not intend for this to be of this length.
It is now as you hear it here.
I have come to cherish this music so much, I've listened to it hundreds of times and I never get tired of it because it fills me with such peace, so I had to name it Peace of Pi.
I've let others hear it, and they too feel a sense of peace from it. Even when I don't explain to them the significance of its creation, people find it comforting.
So I now give this music to the world.
If it is of any divine significance, it cannot be mine to hold. Just please remember me and keep my name attached to the tags if you will.
Whether you do or not, please share it freely. It belongs to the world.
